Surigao del Sur is simply heaven for me. When we first planned this trip, I had no expectations since I was thinking that it was just another province to visit, a place to fill in the gaps of our itinerary. But I was proven wrong. Surigao del Sur has its own unique beauty. The Britania Group of Islands was captivating and I can honestly say it's one of the best place I've ever been.

But what else is there to visit in Davao City? Here's a quick travel guide on where to go, eat and stay.

Ever wondered what Manila looked like during the old times? Since I am a huge fan of architecture and history, I can't help but share these stunning black and white photos of old Manila which I stumbled upon while doing some paperwork. These photos narrate the story of Manila from the Spanish colonial to the post-war era. It shows Manila far from its current state of highways surrounded by tall glass skyscrapers . Streets are filled with calesas and the tranvia with little to no traffic compared today. The bahay na bato lined up the streets of Manila specifically Escolta and Pasig River was used a major transportation route.
